On June 10th, 2013 at 7pm, Terri Conn (As the World Turns), Anthony Rapp (RENT) and Patrick James Lynch (Stop The Bleeding!) will lead a benefit reading of 'Deleted Scenes' at The Mainstage Theater, 416 W 42nd Street. Proceeds from the benefit will go to the Hemophilia Association of New York.

Lynch, a severe hemophiliac, and his company organized the event in an effort to raise not only money for hemophilia, but also awareness of the disorder. Said Lynch, "It's an excellent opportunity to bring together two communities that may otherwise not find each other." Lynch lost a sibling to complications from hemophilia in 2007 and has since worked to better integrate outreach & advocacy with entertainment.

'Deleted Scenes' observes two ex-friends forced to reunite to record the director's commentary track for their hit indie film five years after the film's release. Josh (Lynch) is now a star and writer/director Brian (Rapp) is floundering. When Brian's ex Madison (Conn) shows up unexpectedly, tensions rise and old rivalries spill over into the studio.

The cast features Anthony Rapp (RENT), Terri Conn (One Life to Live), Patrick James Lynch (Stop The Bleeding!), Stephen Payne (August: Osage County), & Katy Wright-Mead (Boardwalk Empire). The reading will be directed by the playwright, Ryan Gielen (Turtle Hill, Brooklyn).

Open bar reception begins at 6pm. Q & A and open bar reception will follow the performance.

HANY is an independent not-for-profit health organization founded in 1952 to assist persons with hemophilia and related blood disorders, support scientific research toward improved care, and educate the public regarding bleeding disorders.

Hemophilia is an inherited medical condition in which the blood doesn't clot normally. A person with hemophilia bleeds longer than others after an injury, especially in the joints. The bleeding can damage organs and tissues and may be life threatening.
